Thanks to the Emergency Medical Services Children’s Program the SRMC now has a tool to aid in training the medical staff how to better treat ill newborns through artificial intelligence. The Super Tory is the world’s most advanced newborn patient simulator. Super Tory can develop breathing problems, cardiac arrest, jaundice, even seizures, at the press of a button. Not only does Tory move her arms and legs, but she makes lots of sounds and facial expressions, which are important cues since babies can’t tell anyone what’s wrong.
The Schneider Regional Medical Center would like to thank the International Gospel Center of St. Thomas and Pastor Toi Barbel – Thomas for donating specially inscribed bibles and plush newborn blankets to the hospital's maternal child health unit. We agree that Faith is an integral part of the healing process, and we welcome the warm and loving support of our faith-based community. A few newborns entering the world here at the SRMC will be blanketed with even more love due in part to this generous donation from the International Gospel Center of St. Thomas.
Provide a separate bedroom and bathroom for the person who is sick, if possible. If you cannot provide a separate room and bathroom, try to separate them from other household members as much as possible. Keep people at higher risk separated from anyone who is sick.
If possible, have only one person in the household take care of the person who is sick. This caregiver should be someone who is not at higher risk for severe illness and should minimize contact with other people in the household.
Quality health care is of the utmost importance to every patient, and that includes not only their treatment by the doctor, but their initial and subsequent interactions with SRMC staff.
Wearing a face mask in public helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 — but only if worn properly, covering both your nose and mouth.
Wear your Mask Correctly
1. Wash your hands before putting on your mask
2. Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
3. Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
4. Make sure you can breathe easily
5. CDC does not recommend use of masks or cloth masks for source control if they have an exhalation valve or vent
